Alright, already, I want to hear what are you so angry about. Think hard, and write it all down. It won't change anything but sharing it could lighten the load a bit and maybe someone can say something helpful.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

Sugary things are ok. It seems like I have been having a tendency to go for the "spicy" Nacho cheese with extra jalepeno. I still have to have my diet cherry D.P. Maybe it's the salt.

I don't think that many things tempt me, or that I really have too many cravings except for Krispy Kreme Raspberry filled donuts. I tell you I don't know what these things have in them but for the life of me I can't resist them. THEY ARE MY FAVORITE! Because I love them so much I do like to enjoy 1 once in awhile for a treat. my hubby would pick up a box, and I would try and take 1 and freeze the rest. Ok, this is no match for my love of this donut! I would still end up eating the box. Well, the other night I wanted one, and my hubby was like you know you can't be trusted with a box in the house...LOL! So I agreed and told him I was just going to run to the corner store and get something small and sweet, well what do ya know??? They sell these donuts individually now, so I was able to get 1 donut and not bring a whole box home.

Hmm. My trigger foods are..... food. In most of its forms. I have the capacity to eat large portions and more than I need without feeling replete and, unless its something I really can't stand, like tomatoes (FOOD OF THE DEVIL) or mustard (probably because as toddler in Singapore, I poured a whole tin of mustard powder into my mouth and was very very ill!) I struggle with feeling full. However, peanuts and grapes have been specifically invented to be chain-eaten, so I try to avoid them; bread scares me because I know that it can weaken my resolve; I was put on this earth to enjoy strong cheese, and it takes a humungus amount of self discipline to not keep sneaking bits off the lovely ones we have in our fridge for my slim-and-can-eat-as-much-as-he-wants hubby. Living overseas in Singapore, Cyprus, Malta and Gibraltar has made me a fiend when it comes to fruit and I fight to stay within the 5 recommended portions a day. All in all, I'm a walking nightmare and have deserved the 70 extra pounds I put on. Sigh.

Help is at hand - SP hand my fab SF's have mystically appeared to save me from me! So, pulling those triggers and firing the bullets of overeating are now being kept under control. I won't let the POG (Pesky Overeating Gremlin) grind me down!
